PATTERN RELEASE & DISCOUNT: Sunday picnic dress

October 04, 2014

Woohoo! My Sunday picnic dress is now available for purchase!!! (Read on for a discount code) If you are confused and were expecting the Sunday best dress - I had to change the name due to another PDF pattern with the same name.  Thank you to everyone for your input over on my fb page

I am really excited about this pattern.  I have made four Sunday picnic dresses so far and have another two cut out ready to go.  You can read about and see more of the dresses here.

The Sunday picnic dress is a sweet vintage inspired and versatile dress which has three sleeve options as well as a sleeveless option.  The pointed collar may be omitted for a plain finish on the bodice, or a piped edge. Decorative buttons may be added to the bodice for some extra detail and colour. The bodice is fully lined. The A-line skirt is accented with piped pockets. The dress closes with an invisible zip along the centre back seam.  No hand stitching is required for integrating your lining and invisible zip. Sizing is 12 mo - 10 years. The pattern is a 37 page PDF document.

The instructions are clear and well annotated and include clear coloured photographs for each step. Measurements throughout are given in metric and imperial.

The pattern tiles are easy to assemble and are colour coded and well labelled.

To purchase your copy of the Sunday picnic dress, please visit my shop!!  You can receive a 20% discount by entering the code SUNDAYPICNIC20 at checkout.  Expires this Sunday midnight Melbourne time.

Testing a pattern is such an important part of the pattern making process and my testers were fantastic! Many of them sewed two dresses as I altered the pattern and need it re-tested. Thank you so much girls -Thao, Karly, Cristi, Shino, Yeka, Denise, Rachael, Tracie, Rita, Gigi, Ana Sofia, Emily and Maria.
